Mid-Day Gold & Silver Market Report –4/14/2014


Gold futures are heading to their highest close in three weeks. Combinations of investor skittishness about events unfolding in Ukraine and the sharp stock sell-off last week are keeping Gold prices up. It is interesting to note that Gold and Silver remain positive despite a rebounding equity market. Palladium has been in the spotlight as of late. Concerns about Russian Palladium supplies are driving prices to their highest level in two years.

The stock market is up over 100 points, as the U.S. retail sales rose 1.1% in March. This supports speculation that the economy is shaking off the effects of a cold winter. March results are the strongest gains since September 2012. “The overall tone of this report was unambiguously constructive, underscoring that U.S. consumers are back in the game after the weather-induced slump in spending in earlier months,” Millan Mulraine, economist at TD Securities, said. It is significant to note that auto sales were up 3.1% in March. Platinum and Palladium prices are correlated to the health of the automobile industry.
